'Anata, Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Tue 18.3.08, Afternoon

Julia W., Chana G., Rahel W., reporting


Unlike last week, things were very quiet and uneventful in Anata.  Even so, there was a very large force of border police , some private security personnel and blue police.  However, everything moved very quickly in both directions.  Also, for some unknown reason, there were very few school children going through.  (Perhaps it had something to do with Holy Week for the Christians).

Wadi Naar

Very few vehicles in either direction, no cars stopped for inspection, and few workers returning home.  Very quiet.
